Streaming about to get easier with Roku TV plug-in
Streaming TV is all the rage at the moment but what if you don’t have a computer or a games console for streaming your iPlayers and your LoveFilms and your Netflixes through? You’re pretty screwed, right? WRONG.
That’s because these things are coming, and because they’re popular in the US of America, they’ll probably be a hit here too. Made by Roku, they’re plug-in streaming players that will connect to almost any TV via RCA or HDMI, with HD streaming up to 720p.
For £49.99, there’s the Roku LT which works without a PC and uses Wi-Fi. For another £50, you can have have the fancy-pants Roku 2 XS, which also has games like Angry Birds incorporated into it, along with Ethernet connection, a MicroSD and a USB port.
They’re due to be launched in the UK on 27th January and you can pre-order them from Amazon now.
